Please be advised that this event has been cancelled.
As the campaign trail heats up, it's been interesting to observe which parties recognise the importance of the screen sector.
With only two confirmed parties, we believe that the conversation will be one-sided and would not provide a broad enough representation to conduct a robust debate, and we have made the tough decision to cancel the event.
We're now focusing our intentions towards continuing to collaborate with representatives from the pan-sector body steering committee, to create a brief to an incoming government about the value and needs of the screen sector.
The brief will cover the who, what, where, and how of the sector, as well as a timeline of what's happened over the last three years, the pressure points, and the challenges that we face in terms of both domestic and international production.
We thank you for you understanding and continued support.
Find out what the election means for you and your industry.
Film Auckland will once again host the screen industry election forum. MPs and candidates from Labour, National, Tē Pāti Māori and the Greens will let you know what each party is promising and what the impact will be on our industry before you vote this year.
Find out at the Screen Industry Election Forum 2023 if these parties will support our sector. People who attended the last election forum said they learned things they never would have got from the media.
The panel conversation will be moderated by John Pulu and will allow each representative to have an opportunity to share their perspective from their political party.
We will be offering the opportunity for socialising over refreshments and nibbles in the foyer from 5 PM, and the formalities will kick off promptly at 5:30 PM.
Previous Election Forums were a sell out, so be sure to get in early to reserve your seat.
NOTE: This event is held by the screen industry, for the screen industry. It is not open to the press to record the session or report it live.
